This book is about a wizard that teaches magic, a dwarf mercenary, and a buck-toothed giant. Giant rats attacked Illmoor and the king of Illmoor paid the wizard, the dwarf, and the giant a lot of gold to find a charmer named Diek Wustapha, who had sent the rats. The king wanted Wustapha to stop sending rats into Illmoor. These three characters were attacked by lots of evil creatures while looking for Wustapha. If you want to find out more about these characters and how the story ends, you will have to read the rest of the book.

My favorite part was when the wizard, the dwarf, and the giant fought the Orc Warriors. This book reminds me of "The Lord of the Rings" series because it is also set in the medieval times. This book is also a part of a series of six books. This is series one. I liked the book because I love to read about Medieval times and this book is all about that time period.

I recommend you read this book because it is very interesting and funny. I recommend this book to kids who are ten through fourteen who like Medieval time books.
